Light and Darkness

Good and evil are typified by light and darkness; therefore, if we bring light into a dark room, the darkness disappears, and inasmuch as a soul is filled with good, evil disappears. - Aurelia Mace

Just as the rising sun dissolves the dark shadows so are all forms of evil put to flight by the rays of positive and constructive thoughts which shine forth from a heart fortified by confidence in oneself. - K. Sri Dhammananda 

In the gloom and darkness of the night, when there is a sudden flash of light, a person will recognize objects; in the same way, the one with a flash of insight sees according to reality. - Anguttara Nikaya
